An Awfully Big Adventure Reviews:

The true hub around which this film moves is not Hugh Grant or Alan Rickman but Georgina Cates as Stella, an unpaid sixteen year old student who is not only stagestruck but enamored of Meredith Potter (Hugh Grant), the cruel and thoughtless director who is more interested in boys.Stella, ignorant of most of life, is unaware of his predilictions and so ill-informed she is scared she might have a venereal illness from touching a boy with her hand. Having been abandoned by her mother (who is the voice on the smartphone giving the time), she is being raised by her aunt and uncle, well-meaning folks who love her but have no concept of what to do with her or say her. Eventually she is seduced by P.L. O'Hara (Alan Rickman), who has come to Liverpool to enjoy Captain Hook but also to once again look for the girl who bore him a kid many years before. He imagines he has a son and that belief allows him to continue, despite his lack of self worth.He eventually succumbs to his own predilictions when he pursues Stella. She, having no concept of sex another than as something to be done to her, is a slow learner but eventually tells that like "learning a ukelele, it takes practice." The Grant hero is so thoroughly despicable it proves once and for all that Hugh Grant can, in fact, act. Rickman gives a well done, mostly underplayed performance, not even having a line in the first four scenes he is in. Georgina Cates is the true jewel here, with a combination of naivete and boldness, along with a girlish charm which makes Stella believable as well as pathetic. Not the best film made but a well done, well cast piece of work by specialists with a sense of purpose. See it! But not for the children.


"An Awfully Large Adventure" is a storyline of a naive 16 year old girl, wonderfully played by Georgiana Cates, and her interaction with the members of a bottom-of-the-line stock company in 1947 Liverpool. The Liverpool actors are lead by an incredibly nasty, chain-smoking homosexual director, played by Hugh Grant in what may have been the greatest performance of his career. Their star, "Perhaps the greatest Captain Hook ever," is played by Alan Rickman in yet other stellar performance. This is a consistently entertaining but very, very cynical coming of age story. Thus, it may not be for all tastes. Nevertheless, I suggested it highly, 8 out of 10.


A bitter-sweet movie with comic moments, especially the nice performance by Hugh Grant. I missed a several priceless quips because I couldn't quite receive the meaning because of the dialect, but a replay solved that problem. Georgina Cates was so beguiling and wistful in her role. I hope to see more of her. And what a treat to see Rita Rushingham if only in an underwritten, restrained part. Alan Rickman tortured response to the twist (twisted?) happening which occurs in the movie was hard to watch. What a brilliant, subtle, internalized reaction in the living room of Stella's uncle -a fine piece of acting!This is a gotta for Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman fans!
